Java ME tech catches a qode

Neomagic has a cool Java ME technology-enabled app for your cell phone that lets you scan a barcode or 2-D code on a product and view info (like a mobile movie preview clip) on that product. Nifty!

See:

Caught a Qode

Here's a quote:

 qode(R) reader works with 
 camera phones, letting 
 users "click" on two-
 dimensional "smart codes" 
 to connect directly to 
 targets
Here's a video on what that looks like. Watch as the customer scans the Blockbuster DVD case barcode and gets Denzel delivered to the cell phone screen. (Uh, couldn't the customer have picked a better movie? Man on Fire??? C'mon, Die Hard is much better. Or, even Aliens vs. Predator! But, Man on Fire???)

I think the single most relevant point about this techniqe is that it is subject to patent trolling. Neomedia (Qode) has been granted a patent for a server-side redirect for input from a mobile handset's camera. EFF identifies Neomedia as one of the top ten threats to innovation and free expression in the public domain. http://www.eff.org/patent/wanted/patent.php?p=neomedia
